What is a Gynecologic Ultrasound?
High-frequency sound waves are used to produce both two and three-dimensional images of the uterus, bladder, ovaries, and vagina. Viewed on a high-definition screen, these images are extremely detailed. This diagnostic tool is a quick, safe, painless, and effective way for us to investigate and assess gynecologic problems.
Gynecologic ultrasound is typically used to evaluate a host of gynecologic problems, including:
- Heavy or painful periods
- Bleeding between periods or after menopause
- Pelvic pain
- Masses or cysts in or around the ovaries
- Pain with intercourse
- Uterine tumors
- Congenital abnormalities
- Difficulty becoming pregnant
What can I Expect from a Gynecologic Ultrasound?
During a gynecologic ultrasound, patients lie down on a comfortable table. The ultrasound transducer is passed over the lower abdomen or inserted into the vaginal canal, depending on your symptoms and history. This process is painless and is often likened to the sensation of a routine gynecological exam.
The entire gynecologic ultrasound takes about 10 minutes to complete and produces real-time, 2D and 3D images of the female reproductive system. These images are obtained, examined, and interpreted by Dr. Johns during the patient’s visit, so they can get answers and discuss treatment alternatives immediately.
